Just lightly put some tobacco in .. so it is about as high as the rim. Then gently use your fingers to lightly pack it down till it is about 1/8" below the rim.

Get your coals RED HOT! Naturals are the best! .. then let them cool down a little so they ash over a nice consistent gray color.

Put on your bowl, throw a wind cover on and let it just SIT there for 4 minutes without smoking! then try it ... you should notice a big difference!
